    Barney recommended using a collinear hoe on this forum last year. I've seen photos of his garden....so even though I didn't have any idea what he was talking about I knew I needed to check them out. I liked what I saw and so I bought one.

    Been using it a lot this year and I really like it. It isn't a spade and you wouldn't want to use it on really hard ground. But for my garden it works great.

    I have a Honda Mantis tiller that I run through the garden a couple of times a week to keep the soil loose and the collinear hoe works great to get between the plants and to clip the weeds that somehow didn't get chopped up by the tiller.

    But the real advantage is that you use it standing up - not bent over like a regular hoe. My garden is small and I could use a regular hoe - it wouldn't kill me. But as I get older I keep looking for things that will allow me to continue to do the things I like to do. This hoe is much easier on my back than a regular hoe.

    So thanks for the tip Barney. You keep posting and I'll keep learning.

    I sent the GOAT a message this afternoon about the very thing....mine is on the way.

    I like going to bed tired but the garden is growing and efficiencies are becoming more valuable.

    Hey Barney, please start a ho thread! As successful as your Cheap Eating thread has been it may pale in comparison to the ho thread.

    Off to a strawberry patch to pick strawberries from a nice man whom used to live within my subdivision. I have picked there before and never noticed weeds growing between the rows, but he spaces his rows fairly close together, leaving just enough room to carefully step by harvest time. Regardless, I shall ask him what, if anything, he knows about hoes. His patch was of decent size, last visit, but a fungus had gotten to them, which fortunately did not impact the fruit, only the leaves of some of them.

    Cheap hoes are everywhere, but there's nothing in this world that's quite as stellar as a high dollar hoe when you find yourself in dire need.
